Hey guys! My name’s Hannah. I’m a college student in the great state of Oklahoma trying to balance classes, Jesus, family, and sorority, among other things. This blog is going to be about the things I’ve learned in life, what’s helped me in high school and college, and of course how I’ve stayed grounded in Christ along the way. My goal is to help teens/young adults like me find their way and find what they were created to do.
It’s also going to be a little bit about the adventures in my life, so I can document and look back on the memories I’m creating! And so my family that is spread across the country can keep up to date 😉
The name, Living Wonderfully, was inspired by two of my favorite verses:
Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
In Psalm it tells us that we are wonderful works of God, specially crafted by Him. I find great joy in knowing that I’m not the way I am for no reason. Every thing about us- physically, personality, like/dislikes- is all a part of this amazing creation that is us and that was created by God. But why?
That brings me to my next verse. In Ephesians, it tells us again that we are created by God, and it goes on to say that our whole life has a purpose filled with good works that God prepared long before we were even born. In this teen-young adult age we make some of the biggest life decisions ever, and it can be really confusing and hard, especially with all the expectation we are held to from family, friends, and especially the media. This verse really helps me to stay grounded in the purposes that God has designed me, not what anyone else expects me to do or be. My goal in life is to discover and live out all the wonderful things that God has created for me, and I hope this blog helps others do the same.
